Wide receiver Duron Carter, the son of former NFL star and current ESPN analyst Cris Carter, hauled in his first professional touchdown Sunday for the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes.

Carter, who had a collegiate stint with Ohio State and had tryouts with Minnesota and New Orleans this spring after going undrafted, scored on a 45-yard reception early in the fourth quarter against the Toronto Argonauts.

Matched up against Argonauts/ex-NFL defensive back Pat Watkins, Carter feigned as if he were running a shorter route, then streaked down the sideline, gaining separation from Watkins. Carter hauled in the pass, then leaped into the endzone, holding the ball over the goal line with his right hand.

Carter, who has worked his way up from the Alouettes’ practice roster, has caught eight passes for 210 yards for Montreal, which fell 37-30 to Toronto on Sunday.

The Alouettes are 4-6, two games back of Toronto in the East Division.

    Give the kid credit, he didn’t quit just because he couldn’t catch on in the NFL. Maybe he will someday.

    It isn’t important. Nothing on this site is important. It’s interesting because of his lineage. Carter put a nice double move on his man, and ran right by the corner. Considering that Cameron Wake came out of the CFL, and Trestman won his first game as the Bears HC yesterday, the NFL is paying attention to the CFL.

    Really, lets celebrate a kid who got kicked out of OSU, and Bama? Yep I bet his daddy is proud. I was 10 feet from Chris Carter the first game Duron ever played at OSU vs. Navy and he was beeming with pride, I am guessing he will have a nice career in the CFL he is not NFL material. In a related story Jonathen Ogdens daughter is leading the WNBA in Rebounds?
